As a high school student, Jung Woo isn’t exactly at the top of his class's social hierarchy. In fact, as one who is bullied daily, Jung Woo could easily be considered one of the lowest, most unlucky students in his entire school. Struggling every day just to get by, Jung Woo does everything he can to hang on long enough to graduate. But when Jae Seong and his cronies decide to hold a fighting tournament among the school’s weakest students, Jung Woo finds himself caught up in the school’s biggest, most talked-about event of the year. Determined not to lose, Jung Woo heads to the gym to train, but it isn’t until he meets the school’s new transfer student, Min Ah, that he finds the inspiration he needs to truly fight back.

Short But Packs a Punch

This was very hilarious in certain scenes, especially the sister's miscomprehensions. 😅😂🤣 ☺️

I was surprised at how violent some teachers are. Smacking children's heads is not allowed in our country, especially by staff. I guess I'm not surprised that the children are allowed to bully when the teachers act that way. 🤼🤼‍♀️👨‍🏫😱🤔

The youth all played their parts well. The parents were decent though unaware. The guys in the gym were meant for comic relief, because bullying can be a heavy topic. 👨‍👩‍👦 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

This tackled a serious issue in schools but in an easier-to-handle comedy, rather than a dark, gritty way. 💼🎒📘📙📚

I thought that not seeking revenge was a valuable lesson. His motive to win was for the female lead's sake. It also showed how important it is to overcome our fear of others. A bully is rendered powerless when victims get past their fear. 🔥❤️‍🔥

This drama is top notch! I don't see why it's underrated because it really is a good series.
Fighting for what's right, that is the message you will get from watching this.
I do have some complaints though for example, Kim Do Yeon.

Don't get me wrong, I like him and I was really moved by him in Move To Heaven but he was playing an adult. In Strong Underdog he plays a high school student and I don't think it fits him well because he looks older. I have to say that he did a good job but I just don't think he should play such young roles, he should play an adult as he IS an adult.
I also don't like how the ending didn't show us Min Ah kicking ass. I mean, come on! She was already kinda cool (in my eyes) and then it's revealed that she is a total badass!

Anyway as I said, Strong Underdog is really good and I hope you give it a chance and watch it.
